Chesterfield Township Police Officers Cleared Of All Wrong Doing

Published: February 01, 2010

On February 1, 2010, three Chesterfield Township Police Officers were cleared of any wrongdoing in a federal lawsuit filed against them by a City of Warren police officer arrested for domestic violence. The plaintiff alleged that he was wrongfully arrested and that his step-daughter should have been arrested. The Chesterfield Township police officers were defended by G. Gus Morris of McGRAW MORRIS P.C. Judge Steven J. Murphy III of the United States District Court agreed with Messrs. Morris and Gilmer that based on the information the officers had at the time of the plaintiff’s arrest, the arrest was wholly justified. According to Mr. Morris, who has represented over 100 police departments throughout the state, “the District Court dismissed this case because it was clear that the Chesterfield Township Police Officers did a complete and thorough investigation, and that based on the investigation, which included interviews with the plaintiff, the victim, and the grandchild of the plaintiff, any police officer in my clients’ position would have concluded that probable cause existed to arrest the plaintiff.” For further information, please contact either Mr. Morris at (248) 502-4000 or via email at
